SMPTE Quarterly Standards Update with the AES

Original Air Date: Thursday, July 1, 2021  1:00 PM - 2:30 PM EDT

Our quarterly update on the work of our standards community featuring an educational update on the work of our close partner organization, the Audio Engineering Society (AES). This update marks 12 months of Virtual SMPTE plenaries and 6 months of working on our new SMPTE Knowledge Network toolset. Our Director of Standards Development will be giving an update on progress and a chance for you to ask questions.

The Audio Engineering Society will be giving us an update on their latest work before we get an update on the latest developments on projects within the standards community. You're encouraged to bring questions for the presenters.
